    Just got this email from my T-Mo rep:

    >Just touching base with you to let you know that we haven't gotten our
    >shipment of Treo's in yet. It should be next week but I never believe it
    >until I see it. I want to go ahead and make sure I have everything ready to
    >put your order in so just want to confirm as soon as it gets here, you want
    >me to order it correct?
    >
    >No one here has heard about the Treo 610 and even when they come out, we may
    >not get them or if we do, it could be a while. So just wanted to confirm you
    >do want to go for the Treo 600 and not wait for the 610? Also, you will want
    >to add a data plan I'm assuming so you can get the full functionality of the
    >Treo? The cost is $19.99 for unlimited data and all you would do is
    >transfer your current SIM card to your new device. So your phone bill will
    >stay the same plus the $19.99 charge.


    Does anyone know if there is a better way to go than the $19.95 unlimiterd data charge?

    As an AT&T guy paying $20/month for 8Mb, you're living the good life for $20 unlimited.

    Though I'm pondering a jump to TMo, just gotta see if TMo will allow VPN connections to go through (aka is their internet limited or open)

    Please note that the first post in this thread totally conflicts with numerous posts by other posters citing direct communications (in some cases written literally on paper) stating that T-Mobile wasn't going to be carrying the TREO 600 at all but simply linking to the palmOne web site from the T-Mobile web site.

    Someone speaks with a forked tongue.

    Who?

    $20 for 8 meg sure seems limiting. I used about 150 meg last month. Regular email, occasional web surfing, occasional Shoutcast streaming.

    When I signed up for T-Mobile's unlimited internet, I was asked whether I wanted the VPN plan or the regular plan. I chose regular. The three selections on my network connections are: (1) T-Mobile Internet; (2) T-Mobile vPN; (3) T-Zones.

    Though nothing in that letter openly states it, it kind of sounded like it was a corporate deal. Can the poster confirm or deny that?

    Seems Tmob is the channel for biz, but is letting HS handle consumers.

    It is a corporate deal, although I am not a corporation. The rep knows this. I got the reps name through the T-mo website where they were advertising the Treo 600 (someone has posted it in one of the threads). There was no price, just a link to reps.

    Here is the text of my reply and her reply back to me -


    J -

    Yes I am still interested in getting the Treo 600 - please go
    ahead and
    order one for me (unless you happen to hear definitive news
    about the 610).

    Let's hold off on the data plan for now while I check what is my
    best
    option.

    Just FYI - there is some info on the RUMORED Treo 610 here -
    http://www.bargainpda.com/price/defa...ndName=Palm&pr
    oductName=Treo+610&display=priceDetail
    but still, it is only a rumor....

    Thanks for following up!

    Thanks, Chris

    From T-Mo -

    Chris-

    If you don't
    add data, it
    will still be a phone and PDA but just won't do all the e-mail
    and internet
    capabilities.

    Also, I wouldn't be surprised if the 610 doesn't launch until
    summer. Palm
    has a tendancy of overpromising. That's why our shipment hasn't
    arrived yet

    Also,one more thought. ! we
    were suppose
    to get our first shipment of Treos in October and we're just now
    getting
    them so wouldn't get excited about the Treo 610.

    Thanks,
    J

    Thanks! Can someone explain the difference of these plans?

    I read about a surgical procedure for forking tongues of people, which is becoming more popular. Certain states are now banning the practice.

    Some people do it for "self expression" and for ... ahem ... other reasons. It seems really weird.

    Their internet appears to be open from what I can tell. T-Mobile Unlimited Internet on my Treo 600.

    and wouldn't it be hard to speak with a forked tongue? seems like you'd stumble over your words while trying.

    and as far as doing it for... ahem other reasons... well, that IS illegal in some states.

    I'll just be off watching a couple of hours of C-SPAN to rid myself of that image now....

    Mandatory On-Topic Content:
    If they don't come out with one on T-Mo, I'll probably get one through AT&T, unlock it, and swap SIM cards depending on whether I was using voice (AT&T) or data (T-Mo) at the time.

    There was a video broadcast of one of the people who had split his tongue down the middle (Discovery channel maybe. perhaps Discovery Health).

    He could move both sides independently. To illustrate, put your two index fingers side by side against each other pointed away from you. Now cross one over the other. Now back to simply against each other. Now cross them the other way. That's the video of his tongue.

    Shall we now get into pertinent discussions of the ... ahem ... interesting folks who have bisected a different part of their anatomy?

    The difference in the capabilities of the connections. T-Zones is their WAP services. I believe unimited is free or very cheap per month. You can use their WAP services (very limited, not pictures) to view basic things. Its their own setup of news, weather, IM, etc. You cannot view the web.

    The Internet is what most people use, its $20/month and lets you use the Internet on the phone. This includes the web, IM, streaming audio/video, etc. Anything you'd normally be able to do on a computer.

    The third is for VPN connections. This is important for employees that want to access their corporate network for accessing email, calendars, etc. It also includes everything in the one above. I believe its the same price and the one above, but I'm not sure.

    How did you get the corporate deal without being a corporation? This was how I wanted to go, but I couldn't figure how to do it without just "glossing over" the truth.

    Thanks.

    I just told her the truth - it seemed like it was more important for her to make the sale than for me to be a corporation. I am an existing T-mo customer, also.

    I got tired of waiting for the T-Mo unit to be released. I went to my local Cingular store and purchased thier Treo 600, popped my T-Mo SIM in the device and went to town. There is a lot of talk in various forums that the Cingular units are optimized for use with only Cingular networks. IMO, just a ploy by T-Mo to prevent us from purchasing units elsewhere.

    Since all Cingular Treo units are unlocked, you can use any GSM SIM. The reception with this unit is much better than with my SE P900. Internet works, POP3 e-mail retrieval works, SMS and MMS works, etc... So much for the optimization thoery. I may eat my words when I start traveling to other parts of the country, but so far performance has been outstanding.

    The device is very well engineered and constructed. I ended up paying $599.00 for the unit, no contract, no external or internal Cingular logo (Except when you turn the wireless ON initially). After surfing e-bay and seeing a Cingular employee selling "Unlocked GSM Treo 600" units for $750.00 and up, I did some research and found the details on the unlocked status from Cingular. (AT&T DOES lock thiers to my knowledge)

    Now for T-Mo plans.........I am grandfathered on the original 5000 minute/$99 mo plan with $2.99/mo for T-Zones. The $2.99/mo plan, currently selling for $4.99 I believe, has unlimited data and internet access. So all of my e-mail and web surfing only runs $4.99 (or old $2.99) additional.

    And for those wondering......T-Mo service rocks IMO. Just a little frustrating that thier time to market for new devices takes longer than others.

    Enjoy.............


    Anyone else with simular experience or input ???
    Thanks,

    I guess I am one of the few with a T-Mobile supplied Treo 600. Their service is great; I've been a happy corporate customer for years.

    The Treo 600 is a great phone. Excellent call quality with a superb speakerphone. Phone integration with the PDA applications is good (I am missing some of the nuances that the BlackBerry has, but I can deal with it). It's good enough that I recommended my wife get one to replace her dead (RIP) Palm M515. I haven't the T600 outside of the US, but since it has the 900/1800 MHz GSM frequencies it should work well wherever T-Mo has a roaming agreement.

    I'm going to guess that the unit is SIM card locked, but I don't have a non T-Mobile SIM card to check it out with.

    what do you miss about the blackberry? just curious because I've always wondered how blackberries stack up vs the treo.
    I know the email is faster. what else did you like?
